Ok, got a cheap build here but will slowly be upgrading, what caught me was a friend offered me a core 2 extreme for only £180! Mad i know lol as he is going sandy bridge. no idea what type of C2QX it is but he says it was the most expensive so thats worth something right? :sol: 

Good idea?

Betcha it's a QX9770 and it's a discontinued part, so difficult to say what the going price is.

Intel Core2 Extreme X9775 @ 3.20GHz Passmark 3810 Rank 92. For just under US$300 you can get similarly performing CPUs that are new in the box, so keep that in mind. The i5 750 is faster and cheaper and new. :)
